What a cool building, and great composition. But that heavy vignette is so unnatural and is reducing the overall image for me.

Looks like a great spot to photograph. Not loving the vignette.

I'd prefer less vignetting.

Lovely perspective. Maybe I'd have cropped the top a bit and not used that much vignette (this feels somewhat suffocating). All in all a nice job!
